Died 9 February 2021.

English soprano.

Wendy Baldwin spent a decade with the Sadler's Wells company through to the early 1970s. Her repertoire concentrated on the light lyric and soubrette repertoire, though her early performances included full lyric parts including Mimì and Countess Almaviva.

By the late sixties she was singing a varied group of roles such as Rosina, Elvira (The Italian Girl in Algiers), Marzelline, Frasquita, Patience, and Lady-in-Waiting (Gloriana).

She created the part of Madame Sciocca in The Violins of Saint-Jacques (Williamson 1966).
